So a little about me.
I was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. At an early age I read whatever I could get my hands on. I had my parents buy me as many books in those Scholastic paper magazines they used to give out in school. I was exposed to plenty of books like Boxcar Children to Scary Stories to Jillian Jiggs.
Along with reading, I was also an avid gamer. I loved playing Street Fighter II on the SNES and going to Arcades were I would practice my moves on other people. Apparently, I was so good at it that players around the arcades started to know who I was.
Fast forward to 1999. I joined the military on a whim and ended up in San Diego California. I served four active years and received an Honorable Discharge. Instead of going back to Minnesota I decided to move to Hollywood and I spent a few years there partying, drinking, but no writing.
Eventually I moved back to Minnesota and decided to take my writing seriously. I still had the bug. I just needed an outlet, if you know what I mean.
Fast forward to 2009. I started to play video games and I neglected my writing. Everything I wrote from the time I went back to Minnesota until 2009 ended up locked away in my closet. I was sponsored to travel and play in video game tournaments. However, I wasn’t happy. I knew that writing was something that I needed to stick with.
So eventually here I am.
